(solved) delete existing text in inputfield

How would you delete existing text in an inputfield which is not created by an autoit gui ?

The gui-equivalent function is GUICtrlSetData() which apparently doesn't work in my case.

I am using a workaround atm by sending a series of backspaces and/or dels before sending the text to the input field

ControlSend('windowXYZ','','Edit1','{BS}{BS}{BS}{BS}{BS}{BS}{BS}{BS}{BS}{BS}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}{DEL}'&'text')

Is there a more elegant way to implement this ?
